Todd Frazier, 3B

Frazier is simply the best third baseman in the National League this season, and it would be a crime were he to be relegated to the bench for the entire game.  By all accounts, Mike Matheny is a fine, law-abiding citizen, even if he does manage the St. Louis Cardinals.    No worries for Mr. Frazier.

Prediction: Late inning replacement; one hit in two at-bats.
